Which version? (You mentioned 3.1.3 and 3.2.2 far below.) There is
little value in reporting on frozen branches, and most value in
reporting on R-devel where all the current changes have been incorporated.

See the manual: flags such as -maix64 should be part of CC, not CFLAGS.
That explains a lot of what was reported.

It is safer to put such things on the configure command line or in a
config.site file (they will be found when updating if you do).
